Trailer: “Just Wright ,” Starring Common and Queen Latifah; Coming to Your Screens in May

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This looks like good light romantic comedy. And Latifah looks lovely here. She is a rehabilitative physical therapist who has a special healing touch. Unfortunately, it seems that she can’t heal the state of her love life. She’s more home than girl; more down to earth than seductive.

Common is a pro baller who sustains a serious injury on the court that threatens to sideline him permanently. Well, he needs her to come back to the sport he loves. Naturally, fireworks ensue.

Pam Grier also stars along with Paula Patton, who plays Latifah’s friend–and rival for Common’s affections. It’ll be great to see Pam working in a film that has little to do with her packing a semi-automatic weapon. And Paula was in Precious, last I heard.

Latifah co-produced this film with Debra Martin Chase and Shakkim Compere. Sanaa Hamri, the Moroccan American sista who directed the highly regarded Something New in 2005, helms this, her third film. The girl has never even gone to film school; she has a natural talent for putting scenes and images together. She’s graduated from doing music videos to full-length films.

See it. Enjoy it.
